quickest way is through the shell, change their /etc/passwd entry to be ::/HOMEROOT/user:/bin/bash

instead of ::/HOMEROOT/user:/usr/local/cpanel/bin/noshell


I'm not sure this is tweakable via WHManager yet- doubtful.
It would be under &modify account& (left pane in WHM), if it was going to give you this option.

If you need clarification of what I described, just ask.
Have a great evening

Another way

Another way of doing this is to creat a similar plan but with shell access.
And just upgrade the plan.
